“I’m interested in photography as a means to transmit and represent new realities and as a tool to throw questions about the existence of human beings.

With my work I explore the territories of confusion where the borders of reality and fiction, the comprehensible and the supernatural, the beautiful and sinister, the familiar and the strange. I am also concerned the relationship we have with the elements of nature and appreciate the fantastic as a way to transcend our being.

Therefore I represent places where everything is possible, real landscapes that encourage the creation of new realities or places that invite reflection within our daily reality.

All my work is centered on the idea of transcending reality through the poetic image with denuded photographs of its particularity, places, scenes and characters (self-portraits) misappropriated any objective definition but turned into signs, nodes and links a universe that emerges from reality and merges with the imaginary, poetic and evocative. My work runs close to the dream states, with a clear intention to create visual poetry where beauty, silence, pain, fear, isolation and search are present.”
